Safety instructions
General power tool safety warnings
Warning! Read all safety warnings and all
! instructions. Failure to follow all instructions may
result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term "power tool" in all of the warnings listed below
refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool or battery
operated (cordless) power tool.
1. Work area safety
a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark
areas invite accidents.
b. Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while operating
a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
2. Electrical safety
a. Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter
plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk
of electric shock.
b. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric
shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
c. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
d. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase
the risk of electric shock.
e. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a
cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric
shock.
4
f.
If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a Residual Current Device (RCD)
protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of
electric shock.
3. Personal safety
a. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do not
use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment
of inattention while operating power tools may result in
serious personal injury.
b. Use personal protective equipment. Always wear
eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust
mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce
personal injuries.
c. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is
in the off-position before connecting to power
source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the
switch or energising power tools that have the switch on
invites accidents.
d. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a
rotating part of the power tool may result in personal
injury.
e. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. This enables better control of the power
tool in unexpected situations.
f. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long
hair can be caught in moving parts.
g. If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use of these devices
can reduce dust related hazards
4. Power tool use and care
a. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power
tool for your application. The correct power tool will do
the job better and safer at the rate for which it was
designed.
b. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn
it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or
the battery pack from the power tool before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce
the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
d. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children
and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power
tool or these instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained
users.
e. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tools
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained power tools.
f. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in
accordance with these instructions, taking into
account the working conditions and the work to be
performed. Use of the power tool for operations
different from those intended could result in a
hazardous situation.
5. Battery tool use and care
a. Recharge only with the charger specified by the
manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of
battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another
battery pack.
b. Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a
risk of injury and fire.
c. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other
metal objects like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws,
or other small metal objects that can make a connection
from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery
terminals together may cause burns or a fire.
d. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from
the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs,
flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek
medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause
irritation or burns.
6. Service
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts. This
will make sure that the safety of the power tool is
maintained.
Additional power tool safety warnings
!

Warning! Additional safety warnings for jigsaws and
reciprocating saws.
Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces,
when performing an operation where the cutting
accessory may contact hidden wiring or its own
cord. Cutting accessory contacting a “live” wire may
make exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and
could give the operator an electric shock.

Use clamps or another practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding
the work by hand or against your body leaves it unstable
and may lead to loss of control.

Keep hands away from cutting area. Never reach
underneath the work piece any reason. Do not insert
fingers or thumb into the vicinity of the reciprocating
blade and blade clamp. Do not stabilize the saw by
gripping the shoe.

Keep blades sharp. Dull or damaged blades may
cause the saw to swerve or stall under pressure. Always
use the appropriate type of saw blade for the workpiece
material and type of cut.

When cutting pipe or conduit, make sure that they
are free from water, electrical wiring, etc.

Do not touch the workpiece or the blade
immediately after operating the tool. They can
become very hot.

Be aware of hidden hazards, before cutting into
walls, floors or ceilings, check for the location of
wiring and pipes.

The blade will continue to move after releasing the
switch. Always switch the tool off and wait for the saw
blade to come to a complete standstill before putting the
tool down.
Warning! Contact with, or inhalation of dusts arising from
cutting applications may endanger the health of the operator
and possible bystanders. Wear a dust mask specifically
designed for protection against dust and fumes and ensure
that persons within or entering the work area are also
protected.

The intended use is described in this instruction manual.
The use of any accessory or attachment or performance
of any operation with this tool other than those
recommended in this instruction manual may present a
risk of personal injury and/or damage to property.
Safety of others


(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a
person responsible for the their safety.

Children should be supervised to ensure that they do
not play with the appliance.
5
Vibration
The declared vibration emission values stated in the
technical data and the declaration of conformity have been
measured in accordance with a standard test method
provided by EN 60745 and may be used for comparing one
tool with another. The declared vibration emission value may
also be used in a preliminary assessment of exposure.
Warning! The vibration emission value during actual use of
the power tool can differ from the declared value depending
on the ways in which the tool is used. The vibration level may
increase above the level stated.
When assessing vibration exposure to determine safety
measures required by 2002/44/EC to protect persons
regularly using power tools in employment, an estimation of
vibration exposure should consider, the actual conditions of
use and the way the tool is used, including taking account of
all parts of the operating cycle such as the times when the
tool is switched off and when it is running idle in addition to
the trigger time.

and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual
risks cannot be avoided. These include:

Injuries caused by touching any rotating/moving parts.

Injuries caused when changing any parts, blades or
accessories.

Injuries caused by prolonged use of a tool. When using
any tool for prolonged periods make sure you take
regular breaks.



Health hazards caused by breathing dust developed
when using your tool (example:- working with wood,
especially oak, beech and MDF).
Use
Charging the battery (fig. B)
The battery needs to be charged before first use and
whenever it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs that
were easily done before. When charging the battery for the
first time, or after prolonged storage, it will only accept an
80% charge. After several charge and discharge cycles, the
battery will attain full capacity. The battery may become
warm while charging; this is normal and does not indicate a
problem.
Warning! Do not charge the battery at ambient temperatures
below 10°C or above 40°C. Recommended charging
temperature is approximately 24°C.

To charge the battery, insert the charger plug (6) into the
connector (3).

Plug in the charger (7) and switch on at the mains.

Leave the tool connected to the charger for 6-8 hours.

The charger may hum and become warm while charging;
this is normal and does not indicate a problem.
Generally, a charging time of 6 hours will enable the tool to
operate at an effective power level for most tasks. However,
further charging for up to 8 hours could significantly increase
the run time, depending on the battery and the charging
conditions.

Before using the tool, unplug the charger (7) and
disconnect the tool from the charger.

Do not use the tool while it is connected to the charger.
Switching on and off (fig. C)
To switch the tool on, push the lock-off button (2) to the
unlock position and squeeze the on/off switch (4).

To switch the tool off, release the on/off switch (2).
Sawing (fig. D)
Hold the tool firmly with both hands while cutting.
The shoe (1) should be held firmly against the material being
cut. This will help prevent the saw from jumping, reduce
vibration and minimise blade breakage.

Let the blade run freely for a few seconds before starting
the cut.

Apply only a gentle pressure to the tool while performing
the cut.
Hints for Optimum Use
Sawing laminates
Because the saw blade cuts on the upward stroke,
splintering may occur on the surface closest to the shoe
plate.

Use a fine-tooth saw blade.

Saw from the back surface of the workpiece.
Warning! Let the tool work at its own pace. Do not overload.
7
To minimise splintering, clamp a piece of scrap wood or
hardboard to both sides of the workpiece and saw through
this sandwich.

Sawing Metal

Be aware that sawing metal takes much more time than
sawing wood.

Use a saw blade suitable for sawing metal.

When cutting thin sheet metal, clamp a piece of scrap wood
to the back surface of the workpiece and cut through this
sandwich.

When cutting metal piping, do not cut directly through the
pipe as you would saw a wooden dowel. Instead, cut
around the circumference of the pipe to avoid pinching the
blade. Only one section of the blade should be in contact
with the pipe.

Spread a film of oil along the intended line of cut.
Maintenance
Your Black & Decker corded/cordless appliance/tool has
been designed to operate over a long period of time with a
